The smartest cities put people firstSay “smart cities” and most people think technology—sensors, networks, data, the Internet of things. We think people. We see how technology can help our cities deliver services more efficiently, future-proof assets, and boost transparency, making cities—and citizens—vibrant, healthy, and resilient. Our approach to smart planning and design isn’t just to implement the latest tech trend, but to understand the needs of your community and identify the right solutions to achieve your goals.
Design matters and with that comes a huge responsibility to drive innovative, creative, and relevant solutions.

Smart MobilityFrom automated vehicles to e-scooters, bikeshare to public transit, advances in technology are providing our communities with a myriad of mobility options that can improve connectivity, safety, and reliability. Our focus is on prioritizing people and making their destination—work, home, school, play—easy to reach. We do this by looking at the larger mobility ecosystem so that the many options available work together and create communities that are economically vibrant, accessible, and sustainable. View More
Smart UtilitiesCommunities thrive on productive, resilient systems for distributing power and water and collecting waste. New digital technologies are enabling utilities to extract greater information and efficiencies from legacy infrastructure. This enhances decision-making with cost-effective solutions while realizing benefits in weeks or months. We’ve helped hundreds of communities modernize their services toward smarter, more efficient utility services. The result? Lower costs, reduced carbon, less waste, better service, happier constituents.
Smart Public SpacesAs cities and suburbs grow denser, public spaces—like parks, plazas, and streets—have become critical components in building community. The result? Emerging public realm tech applications. Smart sensors help us understand popular uses and prioritize maintenance. Solar panels collect energy while providing shade. Smartphones become paintbrushes for interactive public art. With each application creating an opportunity for engagement and social impact, making public spaces smart may be one of the smartest moves a community can make.
Smart BuildingsAs the building blocks of our communities, we see opportunities to make the places where we live and work, smarter and more sustainable—better places for people. Whether designing a net-zero or net-positive structure or enhancing user experience, it all begins with technology. Networked sensors and controls can fine-tune operating performance and integrate security behind the scenes. For your occupants, adjust interior conditions for maximum comfort using custom climate and lighting controls—giving users a personalized experience.
